4:04 am
this will be the first time that the secretary publicly answers questions about why officials denied multiple requests for additional security at the benghazi compound. she will also be asked about whether a lack of funding played a role in those decisions. clinton will try to refocus the testimony on her attempts to fix what investigators called systemic failures in leadership and management at senior levels at the state department. she will be prepped upon the department's response. a new high threat security was created and four officials were put on administrative leave as a result of the investigation, yet all four remain on the government payroll. the current chairman of the senate foreign relations committee is senator john kerry. he will not appear because he's busy preparing for his nomination hearings, which begin on thursday. he's expected to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. margaret brennan, cbs news, washington. well there was a report

this morning between the linch to the attack in libya and the seegs in algeria. algerian officials told "the new york times" that several egyptian militants who took part in the september attack in benghazi were also involved in the hostage crisis in eastern algeria. they say the militants were killed during the assault. the attack to the gas plant was connected to neighboring city mali. they said they attacked due to the crackdown on the algerian fighter jets there. elizabeth palmer has that part of the story very when we arrived at the main military airfield, wi found u.s. transport planes had already started to land. five in all, bringing in more than a hundred tons of gear and soldiers from a military base in france. the fighter planes, armored vehicles, helicopters, they're all french, and so are the soldiers.
4:06 am
2,800 french boots on the ground here in mali but behind the scenes this is an international effort and war very few saw coming. the u.s. air force role is critical. >> it's a great dynamic situation, so we don't really have a full handle on that yet, but we expect the operations to continue for the next several days. >> reporter: here's what triggered the french assault. well armed figures linked to al qaeda had been taking over town after town in northern mali since last spring and imposing their own harsh brand of islamic law. last week with the extremists only 300 miles from the capital and mallian troops powerless to stop them, the french government launched a series of air strikes. this one captured by civilians on a cell phone.
4:07 am
when french ground forces along with malian soldiers arrived in the towns where the militants had been dug in, they had gone, leaving nothing but behind their weapons and local people grateful for what they see as their rescue. the ground troops will continue to push north. their goal is to force the extremists back into the desert, but france has warned that won't be the end of this fight. in fact, it's just the beginning of what promises to be a long and complex struggle to restore stability to this strategic and very fragile region. elizabeth palmer, cbs news. the u.s. commander in afghanistan has been cleared of allegations of professional wrongdoing. general john allen was accused of sending inappropriate e-mails to a civilian in florida, jill kelley. kellie is linked to the scandal that forced cia director david petraeus to resign. he maintained he did nothing wrong, but his nomination to be

rave performances and sung it love. not beyonce. she may have lip synced hers but now the marine corps band seeming to be changing its tune. susan mcginnis is in washington with the canned music controversy. good morning, susan. the marine corps band taped all the performances before the event. others feel duped. beyonce took the stage at president obama's inauguration this week and delivered what many called a memorable performance. >> i thought she did an excellent job. she sage really well. she was passionate. i thought it was a moving -- something moving to watch. >> reporter: but now there are reports her singing wasn't what everyone saw. the controversy erupted on tuesday when a spokeswoman for the marine corps band said the singer used a prerecorded voice track instead of singing live.
4:12 am
the marines later backed off that statement saying no one in the marine band is in a position to say whether it was live or recorded. sources tell cbs news beyonce did sing and her mike was hot but she was matching her voice to a prerecorded track. it's not uncommon to prerecord inaugural music in case there's bad weather or unexpected circumstances but the temperatures were mild on inauguration day and the skies were clear. it was a much colder day four years ago when cellist yo-yo ma and violinist itzhak perlman used prerecorded music at president obama's first inauguration, and whitney houston lip synced her famous rendition of the "national anthem" before the 1991 super bowl. no doubt fans will watching closely when beyonce performs at this year's halftime super bowl. we know what we heard was a

a day after a campus shooting. police swarmed the school yes after a fight between two men ended in gunfire. both men were wounded. one of them has been charged with aggravated assault. a maintenance worker nearby was shot in the leg. police have not offered a motive for the shooting. and police across the country are being trained in a new strategy to deal with shooters. eats called active shooter response and it was developed after the columbine school massacre. as bob orr reports, the training requires officers to head off the attacker right away. >> reporter: what you're watching is a training exercise at george mason university near washington. it began with reports of an active shooter. armed campus police officers rushed into a basketball gymnasium. they did not know the number of gunmen or if hostages had been taken.
4:25 am
they say the officers made the right move. first responders should not wait for backup. >> what we're teaching now is if one officer can respond and have a visual on the suspect or know where that individual is, we're telling them to make entry immediately. >> reporter: the officers move fast. following their training they bypass the wounded and focus on finding the shooter. the goal, to cut off escape paths and corner the gunman. >> you look at several incidents that have occurred in this country, individuals who have taken their lives. when have they taken their lives? when they were confronted with a police response. >> reporter: so even if you put one officer in there, they disrupt it. >> that's correct. >> reporter: a s.w.a.t. team arrived with rescue men wearing full anti-ballistic gear. as they approach and arrest the gunman. emergency s.w.a.t. began evacuating the wounded.
4:26 am
this kind of accelerated police action represents a complete rethinking of tactics, prompted by the poor response to the 1999 massacre at columbine high school. first responders there waited for s.w.a.t. teams to arrive even as the attack continued. >> prior to columbine, we would contain, isolate, and wait. now it's not. it's train your first responders equip your first responders, and go in an aggress aggressive situation. >> reporter: it's mentally demanding. in this classroom shooting drill, this officer was the first through the door. >> police, police. >> reporter: how do you make yourself go toward the gunfire? >> it's not easy. it's a lot of training. the human instinct is to run from gunshots, and we unfortunately are the people that are going to the gunshots. >> reporter: so police continue to sharpen their response plan. that won't stop mass shootings, but it could make a life-or-death difference when
